Scooby Dooby Doo Where are you?

On Saturday we  put Maddox in his Halloween costume and headed off to Brennan and Kim’s Annual Halloween Party.  Their Halloween Parties are always so much fun.  Kim is extremely talented in decorating and is so creative.  I always love to see how she does everything up and what her costume is….unfortunately I was busy chasing Scooby Doo around and didn’t get a chance to take a lot of pics of the decor and food table.

Maddox started out loving on Kendyl but didn’t want much loving back! Ha!  Too cute!

Unfortunately…next Sat I won’t get to hang out with Maddox as Scooby ….I’m going to the Carrie Underwood concert!!!  So Sunday we will do a little Trick or Treating and a Fall Festival!

Show us your life – Nurseries and Kids Rooms

This is Maddox’s Sports Inspirational Nursery.  The pictures shown here are from his nursery before Maddox was born…so some things have changed but overall this is still basically the look!  I found it hard to decorate a boys room…i wanted something he could grow with but yet still have that touch of baby.  I feel I accomplished it well and I still love his room….it is just never this neat anymore!   Be sure to check out all the other Nurseries and Kids Rooms at Kellys Korner

I found these at Ross…I love the quotes in them…Shoot for the moon…even if you miss….you’ll land among the stars and Life is not about finding yourself…it’s about creating yourself.

I found this at Hobby Lobby…It’s my favorite part of his room.

I really lucked up with the bedding because it has both UNC and USC colors and I am a fan of both…my husband is a bigger USC fan…notice Cocky up on the shelf!!

I like this plaque but it has been replaced with a Gamecock Fan Parking Only sign….imagine that!! Ha!  It is still really cute!

Please ignore how the crib blanket is laying over the front of the crib.  I took these pictures so long ago and I didn’t realize then it looks tacky.  Notice the blanket hanging on the right of the crib.  My younger sister Laura made it for Maddox and it is his favorite….he loves to pick the fuzz on it….I find red fuzz balls everywhere!!

Do you see the white baseball in the crib…it says babys first Baseball…it is no longer white.

I love our leather rocker glider recliner…we found it at Big Lots and It is so comfy.  I’m sure Maddox will want it in his room for the rest of his days at home!!

Hair Show Souvenir!!

So I went to the Charlotte Hair Show on Sunday.  I had a great time people watching, learning new hair stuff, and catching up with fellow hair stylist friends.  I missed getting to spend my Sunday with my boys but they had a great father/son day!! 

I was excited to find my little man something to bring home to him!!

16 Month Update!

Maddox, you are 16 months old today!  So what are you up to? (I wrote this on the 18th but i’m a little behind posting)


You weigh 31 lbs and are wearing 2t clothing and size 6 shoe

Your vocabulary has not expanded much but you do a lot of jabbering and I know  that you know exactly what you are saying.  Bud-dy and Ball is still your favorite words.


You love the book Go Dog Go and recently we discovered that you are fascinated with Psalty the Singing Songbook.  (This is a DVD my sister handed down to me that my niece Tori loved as a toddler)

Nana, Papaw and Mamaw are on the top of your list of people you don’t won’t to be away from.  You cry when you have to leave them.  Daddy comes in next….you are such a Daddy’s boy.  I come in last….I have a hard time excepting that until I think about how happy I am that you love being with your grandparents and that you adore your Dad.  I want you to have close relationships with all of our family.  I know you love being with your Mommy and I’m the one you will always want when it’s time to go to sleep, when you don’t feel well, and just need that extra babying and loving!


You have become such a good little helper.  You love to throw things away for us….you tried to throw away all my canned goods the other day and I had to dig them out of the trash.  You help us put clothes in the dryer and today you tried to sweep the kitchen and all the cabinets and appliances…it was too cute.

You have started feeding yourself with a fork and spoon.  You still have a little trouble getting the food on there but you sure know how to get it to your mouth!  You eat just about everything.  Your favorite foods are still Pizza, Bananas and Grapes.

Your favorite toys are your Lightning McQueen Car, Buddy the puppet dog, the little football I caught at the High School Football Game, and you love sleeping with your stuffed monkey! 

You love taking a bath.  When we ask you if you want a bath, you run to the stairs and start going up them!

You love for us to chase you around the house.

I’m amazed at how much you understand.  I will tell you to do something and you just know what i’m saying….amazing!  You shake your head Yes a lot and it is too  cute….it’s like you know exactly when to do it because it always is after we ask you a yes or no question!

There is so much more that i’m sure i will think of later but that is a good overview for now…my baby is growing up!  God sure knew what he was doing when he designed children because as much as I miss you being a baby…you just keep getting funner!!  I’m sure that is how it will be for the rest of your life….I will miss the old stages but the new stages will always bring new joys that keeps me living in the moment!!


I love you sweet little man!!!

Maddox’s first trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

On Saturday…Chris and I took little man to Lineberger’s Pumpkin Patch!  We had lots of fun and enjoyed having our first trip to the Pumpkin Patch also….yep, believe it or not we have never been to one.  Were there things like this for us when we were kids?

Maddox took off to the patch!!  He enjoyed swinging…assisted sliding down the sliding board….running around….trying to throw pumpkins…making friends with a little girl and trying to eat her M&M’s….getting his picture taken and picking out a pumpkin!!  There were lots of other things to do there that he will be old enough to do next year!
